My mom doesn't like having her picture taken so getting sources for portraits is a challenge. At our recent family reunion my brother Dan, and excellent photographer, took many family photos. I love this one of my mom so I did a quick sketch just for fun.
This is my progress picture of the National Gallery of Art. It still doesn't look like I have accomplished much but I have been working diligently. I brought a tiny brush with me today…I usually try to use large brushes…but the detail on this one requires a very small one. I started on the right and decided to paint each person in turn…It was slow going but it is such a rewarding piece to reproduce. I am loving it!
